memorial for dogs lost in warIt is Memorial Day Weekend.  Day of remembrance of those who made the ultimate sacrifice so we can enjoy the freedoms afforded us as citizens of the United States.  For us, it is also a weekend to relax after Milwaukee Pug Fest.

Milwaukee Pug Fest

Made it back from Milwaukee Pug Fest in one piece – 1400 miles round trip.  We spent six days on the road; two days out, two days in Milwaukee, and two days home.  While we could do the drive to and from in a day each way, it would be a very long day in the car with our pugs.

We did not take all of our pugs.  Rosie, Sugaree and our PPSNR forever foster Casey Jones joined us for the road trip.  Ollie and Ming stayed home with our pet sitter, Tracy of Supertrifecta Pets.  Ollie stayed home as he does not do well with other male dogs.  This comes from the way he was treated as a puppy.  Ming, as she has gotten older, does not like long car rides.  So in order not to stress them out, they stay home.

Pug Fest was a blast!  We had a chance to meet up with a lot of old friends from across the country.  Make new friendships and get a chance to love on all the pugs.  This year Philly Pug & Short Nose Rescue had two booths at the main event.  We were busy from the time the doors opened until the end of the day.  Did not get a chance to sit down all day.  It was financially successful for the rescue.

Long Weekend Ahead

After such a busy week at Milwaukee Pug Fest, we were all looking forward to a long relaxing weekend with all of the fur kids in the Poconos.  Thursday night we packed the cars.  After her doctor’s appointment Friday morning, Rachel packed up the kids and went to Home d’Pug RV.  I was fortunate that my boss closed the office early.  As we packed the cars the night before, I left for the Poconos right from work.  Time to sit back and relax.

Wishes to everyone for a happy, safe holiday weekend.  And remember those that made the ultimate sacrifice so we can enjoy our freedoms as citizens of the United States of America.
